The Improvement Era (1897-1970) was the official arm of the Young Men's Mutual Improvement Association. It followed the CONTRIBUTOR MAGAZINE (1879-1896). Joined officially to the YMMIA, the Era immediately became the premier adult periodical of the Church through its General Authority sponsorship and its focus on theology, history, contemporary affairs, and life in the Church.

The Latter-day Saints' Millennial Star was the official publication of the Church in the BRITISH ISLES from 1840 to 1970. Parley P. Pratt, an APOSTLE of the Church and the first editor of the periodical, outlined its purpose in its first issue, May, 1840, "The Millennial Star will stand aloof from the common political and commercial news of the day. Its columns will be devoted to the spread of the fulness of the gospel- the restoration of the ancient principles of Christianity-the...

The Instructor was originally published as JUVENILE INSTRUCTOR, from 1866 to 1929. At first a children's magazine, it became the official publication of the SUNDAY SCHOOL of the Church in January 1901. As its pages gradually filled with articles on teaching methods and gospel subjects to be used by the several Church AUXILIARY ORGANIZATIONS, especially the Sunday School, its name was changed to The Instructor in November 1929, better to reflect its content. The Presidents of the Church were...

Cannon died suddenly in July 1896, and the Contributor ceased publication with the October issue. In November 1897 the general board of the YMMIA launched an official magazine, the...
